Technology is a fickle thing. This fickleness is exasperated, sometimes, by the age of the user. Peter Gammons is somewhat famous for his pocket tweets, but it now appears that Peter’s Twitter account has been compromised. It happens to the best of us, regardless of age.

But Peter Gammons is not the rest of us. After noticing his account indiscretions, he doesn’t simply scamper away to change his password. He’s an American treasure, damn it. He merely acknowledges it, tweets about the Red Sox media market, and continues to allow robots to message us all about weight-loss solutions. Why should he change? This bot is the one that sucks.

Let us all take a cue from Mr. Gammons. Don’t let technology rule us. It’s the first step in preventing a SkyNet-like takeover. God bless you, Peter. You are a pillar in this world of LOLs, a keystone for our

    Do the Red Sox really have the 22nd biggest TV market among MLB teams?

        Considering that the Red Sox market territory includes the entirety of Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont and Rhode Island, plus half of Conneticut and small parts of Cananda, no way they rank 22nd. What’s really important is the fanbase (population), not the actual square miles.
